Summary

Between Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket rests Bayberry Island, home to a bronze mermaid statue that promises to grant true love to anyone who asks with an open heart...

For years Rowan Flynn distanced herself from Bayberry Island and its infamous mermaid legend. But after her investor fiancé lost what was left of her family’s fortune, Rowan reluctantly agreed to run the Safe Haven Bed-and-Breakfast, determined never again to fall for the ridiculous fantasy of the mermaid matchmaker.

Now, Rowan is just biding her time until she can return to her “real” life in New York, fixing up the B and B and avoiding neighbors who are angry that the Flynns won’t sell their land to a developer set on turning the island into a glitzy vacation destination.

But when a handsome stranger arrives the night before the annual Mermaid Festival, Rowan’s life takes a turn for the interesting. Is it the divine hand of the town’s patroness? Or is Rowan being set up for another disappointment?

Oh My

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I could not even listen to the entire book. The narrator just grated on my nerves. I am from the south, someone with a different ear might enjoy it. I enjoyed the story line (as far as I got).

Would you recommend Sea of Love to your friends? Why or why not?

Not the audible version

Too annoying to finish

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Better story, better narrator

What could Susan Donovan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

After the first hour, and starting this three times I gave up
